Will Ferrell Also Brings Vague Hopes of 'Zoolander 2' Still Happening
Following word from writer, director and actor Justin Theroux ("The Leftovers") that Zoolander 2 was still a possibility, one of the other stars of the original film has echoed his sentiments. Will Ferrell had a brief chat with JoBlo and was asked about the comedy sequel and whether or not his wild, fashion icon character and villain Mugatu would return. Way back in 2009, Ben Stiller didn't mention him as one of the returning characters, but changed his mind in 2010, and Ferrell says, "We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it." But that's all that was said for the time being. Read on!
Ferrell was one of the best parts of the original film, and it would be a shame for him not to return, especially since he's become such a bigger star in the past 13 years. Of course, we've been hearing about Zoolander 2 for years now, and it has yet to get off the ground. This sequel was one of two troubled sequels that seemed stalled indefinitely at Paramount Pictures, but now that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues made it in front of cameras and into theaters, it's time for Derek Zoolander to make a return to the walkway. After all, if Dumb & Dumber Too can come together after 20 years, there's still hope for Zoolander.
